    DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – June 24, 2016 – As previously disclosed in the Company’s public financial statements, the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) and province of Alberta issued assessments for taxes and interest directly related to certain restructuring activities associated with the 2007 acquisition of Univar by investment funds advised by CVC Capital Partners (“CVC”).
